The best sci-fi show on TV, it's a crime that this series isn't more popular. Dave says: "It's a gripping tale of parallel universes and hidden identities. A series designed to reward patient watching."

This brilliant satire on the suits organising London 2012 must have made a few people wary that the Olympics would ever come to fruition at all. Hugh Bonneville and Olivia Colman lead a quality cast.

When Pixar's Toy Story arrived in 1995, it changed animation forever. The films form arguably the best trilogy of all time. Rosie says: "I was so sad Toy Story 3 didn't win the Best Picture at the Oscars." This Danish police procedural is great for fans of knitwear. Actress Sofie Grabol sports a variety of jumpers to brighten a dark and gritty show. It follows Inspector Sarah Lund, whose retirement is postponed for a brutal rape case. They have their critics but these films are beautifully shot and then there's Taylor Lautner's torso. "Mills and Boon for tweens: a love triangle with a supernatural twist," says Neela.

A director who prioritised story over everything else, Lean's Brief Encounter, Great Expectations and Oliver Twist are all among the 10 films collected here. Follow the alcohol-fuelled misadventures of Bernard (Dylan Moran), who runs a bookshop. For all his kudos as a stand-up, it also remains Bill Bailey's best work.

The definitive adaptation of JRR Tolkien's epic fantasy series. Rosie says: "There's a lot of extra footage, but it's seamlessly woven in. In terms of extras, it's amazing."It's a marvel how these films have managed to sustain their quality. "The Goblet of Fire is the best one, but you have to admire the later David Yates films. It's fun to see how much the actors improved," Rosie says. This set of five films (Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood, The Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo and Sanjuro) is the British Film Institute's top-selling box set. Brooding, intense musings. If Skins was how teenagers wanted their lives to be, this was the sad – if hilarious – reality. Simon Bird is Will, who is dumped into the state school system when his mother can no longer afford private fees. Narrated by Laurence Olivier, this acclaimed documentary series from 1973 began with the birth of the Nazi Germany and ended with the defeat of Japan in 1945. It explores the human consequences of the Second World War. The series that made vampires fashionable again. Dave says: "Snappy dialogue and a sympathetic ensemble cast make this fantasy series both charming and exciting."

Mad Men is a tightly scripted, brilliantly acted drama about a New York ad agency in the 1960s. Jon Hamm's suave Don Draper is possibly the best alpha male to grace the television since Tony Soprano. Nothing can dent the impact of the opening episode, the aftermath of a plane crash, and this remains one of the greatest achievements in US television. Neela says: "Re-live the adventure on the island." The Breakfast Club was a seminal film for anyone in the 1980s. Screw Dawson's Creek, this is what you want to show your kids," says Rosie. Also included are About Last Night and St Elmo's Fire.
